Despite today, July 20th, being Moon Day, most of the coverage of the Moon landing will not be published tomorrow because the landing occurred well after the day’s paper hit news stands. Coverage in the Chicago Tribune consisted of articles detailing the sequence of events viewers would be witnessing, as well as concern over the Russia’s Luna 15.
